Why Buy Used

Why Buy Used from Stanley Direct Auto?

Has your trusty sedan or pickup truck seen better days? Are you looking for another vehicle for yourself or a teenage son or daughter? Stanley Direct Auto offers an enormous selection of vehicles to explore. You may be considering whether to buy a new or used vehicle. If you have looked at new vehicles, you know that new means pricey. You may be quite surprised by what you can find in a used vehicle and how much you can save.

Why Buy Used

A new vehicle means you pay more money on sticker price and depreciation. A new model has a high sticker price, so that means you need a bigger loan to get the vehicle you want, only to have the value depreciate as soon as you drive it off the lot. Some new models can depreciate by 20% or more in the first year. This means you pay all that extra money for the new vehicle only to lose 20-30% of your investment. Used vehicles are priced according to the current value, so you save money by not having the depreciation.

Also due to the higher sticker price of a new vehicle you may only be able to afford a model with lower trim packages. To get the special option packages you want, you need to be prepared to pay more. New vehicles start with basic packages with the lower trim, then the additional cost is added based on the options you choose. With a used vehicle. you can look at several versions of the same model, with the package options you want already included in the price. You can even buy a more expensive model with a similar price, so your budget is still where you want it to be. So, choose the model with the awesome sound system you always wanted. Don’t worry about the extra cost of those heated or ventilated leather seats, no need to splurge to get that massage seat. Your loan amount is based on the current value of the vehicle.


So, you have chosen a used vehicle, but still don’t have the cold, hard cash to get it. That is not a problem, we have a team of finance professionals onsite to help you get the financing you need.
